  • "Well it only drew a NAA-" there is an honest impression. 40-youth's revival in the 60's people. "It was out! "The thing is you should find anyone. May rises insta to blog in the contemporary lexicon, because admission is good, but can take free photos. I would go 1 go twice is nice.

  • High mountain itself elegant Avenue and do not know why only now bring up the Showa. Can't make sense out of Showa, Showa to entire city if you do only in a limited area.

  • A very retro view of Japan. This was a very interesting look at Japan in the 1950’s and 60’s with a lot of interesting things to look at, interact with and get up close to. Would recommend this place ...  more »

  • Great place! Very educating on how Japan looks like in the Showa era. Very reminiscing. You will find many old Japanese there, reminiscing their younger time.
  • Fun mini museum showcasing a wide array of retro/kitsch/cool everyday life items from the Showa period. It's kind of like a crash course in the recent history of Japanese consumerism.
  • This place is a huge amount of fun. Particularly good if it is raining and you are looking for indoor activities.
  • An awesome place to spend an or so, wandering the old city streets. Each of the themed rooms are full of interesting things you can see and touch. Upstairs you play their Super Nintendo games and try on kimonos for free.
  • Excellent museum! Lots of interesting things to see.

Where to stay in Takayama

Look along the banks of the river running north-south through Takayama for arguably the town's best accommodations. Traditional ryokan (guesthouses) with onsite onsen (traditional Japanese spas) occupy scenic positions across this central area, displaying fine carpentry skills of the locals and the distinctive architectural style they developed over the years. West of this area, you'll find a number of basic ryokan, with a decent selection of side-street hostels and standard hotels around the train station.
